Alabama vs Clemson Game & Prop Bet Preview

The Crimson Tide defeated the Tigers in the national title game two seasons ago before departed Deshaun Watson led Clemson on a dramatic game-winning drive in last season’s championship game. Clemson’s only loss this season was to Syracuse but the Tigers dominated the competition after that upset. Alabama lost to Auburn and didn’t even reach the SEC title game but still got the final spot over Ohio State. The Alabama defense was torched by Watson the last two season but this year Clemson is lead by quarterback Kelly Bryant.  Alabama (11-1, 7-1 SEC): ranks first in scoring defense (11.5) and second in total defense (257.8). On offense quarterback Jalen Hurts (768 rushing yards, eight touchdowns) is a superb runner but his poor passing skills cost Alabama when he went 12-of-22 for 112 yards in the loss to Auburn, For the season he had 1,940 passing yards and 15 touchdowns. The Clemson (12-1, 7-1 ACC) Tigers have an underrated defense that ranks second in scoring defense (12.8) and sixth in total defense (277.9).
